Bernie Sanders Proposes Free Education
Senator Bernie Sanders, an Independent from Vermont, proposes legislating free higher education for Americans at public universities and colleges within the USA if he were to be elected to be the next president. Based on other countries such as Germany and those within Scandinavia where tuition-free higher education has been the norm for decades, Sanders believes that it is time that the same policy be implemented in America.
As Sanders argues, too often American students fall into the debt-trap laid out for them by predatory capitalists. When students graduate with $100,000 they owe on student loans something is wrong with our educational system he claims.
So how will tuition-free education be funded under the Sander's plan? Bernie says a small fee will be placed on all stock transactions within the equity markets. Wall Street, you have been warned!
